ANTIQUE PERKO “DE-LITE” RED & GREEN LENS SIDE LIGHTS

 
     Very Rare! ONE PAIR only & Never Used
 



PRESENTED are a rarely seen pair of Perko “De-Lite” brass & galvanized iron Port & Starboard marine navigation lights with kerosene burners and electric fixture behind it. Everything is in new condition. They are made to the International Class 2 navigation lantern regulations adopted in 1910 for boats 26 but not over 40 feet long. They have weather proof chimneys with a turret top. Bodies are iron with hot galvanized over. The doors are front opening of brass, and the chimney turrets are in brass. The doors are fastened with screws and nuts. Inside there is a burner, and electric light element with highly polished nickel metal reflectors behind. The burner is secured in a circular mount with a bayonet lock. Both burners are marked Perkins Marine with thumb wheels that turn smoothly. The Fresnel lens are in mint condition with no cracks, or chips. The top starboard lens strap has been soldered at a break, but is secure.

The lamp is 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" with a 4-1/4" x 4-3/4" lens. The height is 10-1/2" not including the the 1 1/2“ brail. They weigh 6 lbs. & 3 oz in total. 

              Perkin's M.L. Co., rare DE-LITE tag


The tags on both lights dates the lamp from before 1916 and reads:

MANUFACTURERS

PERKINS M.L. CO. BRKLYN, N.Y., U.S.A.

 

COMPANY HISTORY: Starting in 1904, Perko made all kinds of lights under their original name, "Persky". This lamp, under the Perkins, M.L. Co., name was made before they incorporated in 1916, under the name Perkins Marine Lamp Corporation in Brooklyn, NY. In 1931 the name was changed to Perkins Marine Lamp & Hardware Corporation. In 1961, the Brooklyn facilities were closed and operations were moved to Miami, FL. Perkins was dropped from the name and the company became known as PERKO Inc. It was in 1916 that the Perko trademark was registered, and it has been used ever since. The company still makes high quality marine lights and hardware out of its Miami, FL facilities.

For those that like the contrast of polished copper and galvanized iron, you have to love these lights since nothing else will compare to their unique appearance.

DIMENSIONS:
Not counting bail, the lamp is 5-1/4" x 5-1/4".  Lens size is 4-1/4" x 4-3/4". The diameter of the burner opening in the base 4 3/4". The bail adds 1 1/2". Weight is a heavy 3 3 oz pounds each.

 

CONDITION: These are remarkably attractive lights, and the overall condition considering is “as new“. There are only a couple of minor dents on the starboard light which has a perfect lens. The port lamp has only a couple of shallow impressions which are almost unnoticeable. But its lens has 4 small chips on three of the ribs of its Fresnel. The modified burners are included.
